L-69 embraces Code & Creed

[Addressed to International President Newton B. Jones]

ON APRIL 24TH, while in town for a Local 69 [Little Rock, Ark.] retiree picnic, I attended a union meeting at the lodge. The meeting was well attended, and I noticed banners depicting the Boilermaker Creed hanging from the walls of the union hall. I was pleasantly surprised to see members stand up and recite the Boilermaker Creed when the meeting began. Business Manager Rodney Allison then explained how the characteristics identified in the Boilermaker Code describe what it means to be a Boilermaker.
